I'm going to jump on the band wagon with you on this one. These songs never fail to make me feel good and smile. I've especially been diggin' on Big River here lately. Sometimes I just don't have time for the big 2nd set jams. For me, these first set "throw away songs" are sort of a litmus test for me as to whether the band came to play. It's not always the case, but seems to be a pretty good indicator. Any suggestions on hot combos of the two songs? 8/7/82 is a scorcher.

I agree with you as well on the Mexicali thing. By the way, I always enjoy your posts and insights.

Thanks. Btw I was lucky enough to be at 8/7/82, and yeah, it really cooks.

Geez, there are so many great MAMU > BRs (other opinions notwithstanding) ... today's TDIH is a wonderful one (12/1/79). And from there it goes to Loser. Can you get any better? (It's late enough in the thread that maybe no one will answer that, LOL, but still. I love all those songs.) Too bad they then then go into a ... cue up music from Jaws ... BRENT song. Noooooo! But other than that, great 1st set (and astonishing 2nd set).
